ahhh yes, it just wouldn't be the pro-bowl if guys weren't getting in on reputation instead of the season they had.


Either way this format seems better with out conferences


Like McCoy? That one surprises me a bit. But, like you alluded to, some guys have a reputation. I would have gone with Lacy or Forsett instead, personally.


As a homer, I was hoping Harrison Smith and/or Everson Griffin might have a shot. They'll both get there eventually. This is the first time in a long time where I can honestly say that there are probably more future Pro Bowlers on MIN's defense than their offense.


I'm also a bit surprised that Houston AND Hali made it. Nothing against those guys, but there are some pretty good OLB's left off (Kerrigan, for example). Julius Peppers also had a very good season, but maybe wasn't as consistent (or didn't play enough?).


Lastly, there are some good QB's not on that list. Russell Wilson comes to mind right away. Not to mention Brees (I know he didn't have the best year, but he's still very good), Ryan (will most likely end with 4700+ yards, 30+ TD's, and less than 15 INT's), and even Rivers.

Forgot about Forte... He's going to end the year (most likely) with over 100 catches.


Gates at TE had a very nice year. Julius had more TD's, but I'd go with Gates as having had the better year (especially with Thomas missing a few games).


At WR, there are a bunch... Sanders, Beckham, Maclin, Jeffery, Cobb, and even Mike Evans. All of those guys should surpass 1000 yards (some by as much as 400 yards), with double-digit TD's.

Here is a question , are all the pro bowl qb's definite future hall of famers ?


I would say yes


Quarterbacks: Tom Brady, Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger, Tony Romo


Brady and Peyton are locks. Rodgers unless his career is cut short. Ben probably, but I think a lot of his success was the overall good team (possibly my anti Steeler bias). Romo I'm not sure and may need a ring or two. Luck is still too early to call.

I guess it depends on whether you mean will they be in the HOF (once their career is complete), or would they be if their career ended now.


Brady/Peyton - Locks


Rodgers - Will be unless, like someone said, his career is cut short.


Ben - Probably, but I agree that he's the beneficiary of a good team/defense. I don't consider him to be elite.


Luck - If his first two years are any indication, he's well on his way. Continued success/improvement and/or rings will make him a lock.


Romo - As it stands, I don't think he's anywhere close to a lock. In fact, of the six listed, he's the least likely, IMO, by a ways (assuming Rodgers and Luck continue on their current "path"). Win a ring or two, and I think he's in, for sure. But, based on just his numbers thus far, no way. And, so far, his post-season performance/record has certainly been less than stellar. So, the only thing truly in his favor is numbers, and I don't think he has elite numbers. Top 30 (career) in yards, top 20-ish in TD's, etc. There are guys with better totals nowhere near the HOF. On the other hand, Romo has a better TD/INT ratio than most, so that is in his favor. But, that (without any post-season success) isn't enough to get him in (in my opinion).
